A public hearing for a proposed Independent Study charter school, routine approvals of several LCAPs and the 2016-17 budget are on the agenda tonight for Vacaville Unified’s governing board members.
Manolo Garcia, currently Markham Elementary principal and newly named as director of the school district’s Independent Study program, will offer information about the IS program, as it’s called for short, that, in the coming months, will be housed at 1949 Peabody Road. Independent Study is an alternative way of learning, in which a student is guided by a teacher but usually does not take classes with other students every day.
The school’s charter likely will be approved by the seven-member board during a July meeting, Garcia said Wednesday.
